Yitzhak Santis asserts that if Lancet editor Richard Horton is serious about making amends, he should take serious steps that would signal a tangible policy change by The Lancet and its publisher, Reed Elsevier.
Gerald Steinberg maintains that the pressure must continue until Richard Horton, the Lancet, and Elsevier issue clear apologies, retract the hate-filled articles that were never worthy of publication, and create mechanisms to prevent a recurrence.
The Lancet's Dr. Richard Hortons Editorial Fails Credibility Test: He must apologize and retract Gaza letter
Hortons editorial in this weeks Lancet marks another step towards ending the exploitation of this journal for demonizing Israel. At the same time, however, Horton failed to retract or apologize for his own central responsibility for the mendacious An Open Letter for the People of Gaza in July 2014.
NGO Monitor calls for The Lancets Open Letter for the People of Gaza to be removed from its website immediately and for Editor Richard Horton to issue a formal retraction and apology, both on the website and the next hard copy issue.
